Funding Process Support Officer

Oxford, UK
Full time Staff

Oxfam GB’s Programme Funding & Partnerships (PFP) team has a strong global track record of successfully supporting the development of high-quality programme funding proposals, generating and supporting restricted donor programme income of more than £200m/year from leading institutional Donors (bilateral and multilateral), trust and foundations. We have specialist experience and capability in single country and multi-country programme funding, of traditional and emerging aid modalities and mechanisms, of commercial tendering and of complex consortia formation and partnerships development.

The Donor Compliance Support Team sits with PFP and takes overall responsibility for ensuring that Oxfam GB has the appropriate programme funding systems, processes, advisory support and training in place to support the effective delivery, management and compliance of donor contracts. This is a critical role in the department because of the importance and centrality of donor contract management in maintaining Oxfam GB’s cash flow, managing risk arising from non-compliance, and maintaining good external donor relationships. The team collaborates closely with other functions across the department, and organisation, in order to support effective resource mobilisation and donor contract management. The team works across the global programme funding functions to ensure improved standardisation and quality in donor contract management and compliance.

Oxfam GB seeks to recruit two Funding Process Support Officer’s (FPSO) to provide effective support for restricted funds within the organisation, in particular facilitating internal funding authorisation processes as well as other funding administrative processes and requirements as may be required.  This role will work closely alongside 2 other FPSOs

The FPSO will work closely with other members in the team to provide essential day to day operational support and facilitation of funding related processes – in particular supporting country teams to navigate the opportunity sign-on, and proposal and contract sign-off processes, as well as repayments to donors where required. The FPSO will be the focal point for facilitating Oxfam GB’s funding authorisation processes, acting as the link between country and senior managers, ensuring all the relevant documentation is in place, that systems are up to date, and arranging, coordinating and facilitating the appropriate level of authorisation. The role is fundamental to the efficient management of restricted income, and ensuring the proper management of the internal funding authorisation processes so that opportunities, proposals, contracts and amendments can be submitted to donors within the required deadlines.

Contract: Fixed term contract until 1st September 2019.
